Birthday ride at Rossfeld – KTM 690 Duke

Since it’s my birthday I went for another ride at lunch today on the Duke. Actually, I would have gone anyway, but it seemed like a good excuse to take some more photos messing around on it up above Kiska on Rossfeld. I made a new sticker kit for it too, although in some ways I prefer the black and gold one. Looks lighter like this though.

Manuel brought along some funky wideangle lenses to play with.

      Ride until we find a nice spot, or nice curve and then session that spot for a while (and take a few photos!)

    hey Happy Bday man,
    I do need to say: any sticker kit should come with decals that cover up that huge rear sliver alu bit. It is what makes a standard duke ‘unpretty’ (not saying ugly)
    we are all in favour of a replacement tube-style rear :)

      Well, speak for yourself. Cause THAT is the coolest part on the whole bike, hands down.

        I actually agree with both of you. I like the part, just not that it is a different color. That’s why I preferred the black/gold kit to this white one.

          How diplomatic of you ;)

            Sometimes honesty contradicts diplomacy, in this case, the opposite is true.
